    During the 2008 Thanksgiving holiday period, 15 people lost their lives in Indiana traffic crashes. More than 66 percent of those fatalities were alcohol related. Additionally, in more than two-thirds of the fatal collisions that occurred around Thanksgiving, the person killed was not wearing a seat belt.
    In an effort to prevent senseless injuries and fatalities from occurring on Indiana’s roadways this Thanksgiving holiday season, Chief Steve Dean, recently announced that the Charlestown Police Department will join the Indiana State Police and more than 250 law enforcement agencies throughout the state to conduct the Safe Family Travel enforcement blitz.
    Safe Family Travel is a statewide, annual enforcement campaign that combines high visibility seat belt and impaired driving patrols. The effort will take place Friday, November 13 through Sunday, November 29. During this time, Indiana law enforcement officers will work thousands of overtime hours., day and night, to ensure that motorists are driving responsibly and traveling safely on the state’s roadways.

    The Clark County Drug Treatment Court Program will sponsor a food drive/Cornhole/Corn Toss tournament November 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the front lawn of the Clark County Building, 501 East Court Avenue in Jeffersonville.
    This Food Drive will be the first sponsored by the treatment program.  The Drug Treatment Court wants to increase public awareness and give back to the community.
    Participants are asked to donate non-perishable items which will be given to the area food bank.  
    For each item donated, the individual will receive four tosses.  Scores will be kept as they are in a traditional Cornhole/Corn Toss game (a corn bag in the hole has a value of three points and a corn bag on the corn-hole platform is in-the-count and is worth one point).  
    The person with the most points at the end of the day will win a prize.  (Prize still to be determined)  
    The more you donate, the more points you can score and the better your chance of winning!

New picture now hanging in Recorder’s Office, Catherine Poff recognized for leadership during World War II PDF Print E-mail

    “I was just kinda reminiscing,” stated Kathy Wesson as she demonstrated how she was peering into the Clark County Recorder’s Office with her neck outstretched and eyes wide.
    She recalled, “It was after four and the building was pretty much empty. I had just went downstairs from jury duty and was looking at the pictures. Then Dick Jones asked me if he cold help me.”
    That one question posed in June 2008 has now been answered.
    Yes, Jones could help Wesson and she could help him.
    Wesson proceeded to ask Jones if he knew that he was missing a picture of a Clark County Recorder.
    “My mom’s picture was not there,” Wesson stated.
    Wesson’s mom, Catherine Poff, took over the responsibility of the Clark County Recorder after her husband, Julius, was drafted by the Navy in 1942 to defend our country during World War II. While Julius was protecting his country on the Battleship New Mexico, Catherine proceeded to tackle the job of Recorder and mother of five children ranging in age from 10 years to 15 months old.
    The thought of taking over for her husband was natural. The entire family jumped in to help take care of the family’s 26 acre farm in St. Joe with the help of Grandpa William Poff.
